Captured: POWs in WWI

Thursday, Dec. 8 - 1 p.m. Zoom Conference

During four brutal years of the Great War, nearly 9 million people were held as prisoners of war at some point during the conflict. From the shores of Southeast Asia and the Siberian tundra, to mere miles from the Western Front, they were imprisoned the world over – by both sides. Seldom told, learn about the experiences and enduring impact of WWI captivity with Lora Vogt, Curator of Education and Interpretation at the National WWI Museum and Memorial. In partnership with the Pritzker Military Museum and Library.
